Objective
This essay depicts recent advances of MDCT in the evaluation of aortic valvular disease.

 

Conclusion
Aortic valvular disease can be assessed with current MDCT technology. The improved imaging characteristics of MDCT have significantly decreased artifacts traditionally seen with prosthetic aortic valves and enabled excellent visualization of valve function. Advances in ECG-gated MDCT technology offer the opportunity to evaluate a variety of aortic valvular abnormalities.
